recording of Jacqueline of Golden River, by H.M. Egbert.
Read by Roger Melin.
Jacqueline seems to have contracted a touch of amnesia, as she is found in an apartment with a dead man, and with a weapon in her hand. But she remembers nothing of any incident, remembers not her name nor where she comes from, not even why she is where she was found. She only remembers her father, and that he is in danger. Action and adventure soon follow, as Paul Hewlett and Jacqueline attempt to get answers to her questions, taking them on a journey into Quebec and points northward, and Paul knows that they are being followed during their trip. What secrets are both Jacqueline and Paul unaware of? What will they uncover following their northbound journey? Who is Jacqueline?
H. M. Egbert was one of multiple pseudonyms used by author Victor Rousseau Emanuel. (Introduction by Roger Melin)

Agreeing with previous reviewer
I agree with the other reviewer that some of the names were a bit confusing. Often times the story seemed a bit convoluted; however, with Roger Melin's excellent narration, you are compelled to keep listening. I sure hope that Jacqueline was worth all the trouble Paul went to for her. Frankly I thought she was annoying. I would give 5 stars to Roger and 4 to the story itself.

Good story, kinda confusing tho
The summary covers the story line. I got a bit confused with the lacroix, larue, lapew, too many 'la's but it is a good story that kept me listening.
I kind of want to listen to it again and make a diagram just to keep the bad guys sorted out. Overall tho it's a good story, and I enjoyed it.
Roger M is another of Libravox's best readers, he always does a great job. Enjoy!
